Hi! My name is Shatawndra Lister and I am a Transfer Advisor at SUNY Plattsburgh. I meet with prospective students, conduct presentations, review transfer applications, and recruit in various locations throughout the state.
Hometown: Watertown, NY
Professional/Personal Biography: In, May of 2011, I graduated from SUNY Oswego with a B.S. in Business Administration with a concentration in Marketing. In May of 2013 I graduated from Buffalo State with a Master’s in Higher Education and Student Affairs Administration. Shortly after graduation, I began working here at SUNY Plattsburgh and I love every minute of it!
Most memorable college experience: Throughout my four years at Oswego I was a student tour guide. Getting the opportunity to share my experiences with potential students was amazing! I made tons of friends who I am still close with, I gain public speaking skills, and I made great connections with faculty and staff.
Favorite SUNY Plattsburgh activity. Attending all of the student run programs is a lot of fun. The students here are so involved and it is amazing to see what they put together.
Best advice you received regarding college or would give someone entering college: It’s okay to change your plans. When I first came to school I wanted to be a history major. After taking classes for a semester I realized that wasn’t my path. Changing my major was the best thing I ever did because it allowed me to explore what truly made me happy. I am in a totally different place than I expected to be when I was first went to college and I and glad I took that leap into the unknown.
